Today is likely to mark the beginning of Raila Odinga's and the Azimio party's peaceful protests. A week ago, Raila threatened to give Ruto's administration a hard time if they tried to oust IEBC commissioners.
The demonstrations, which are anticipated to last 30 days, will start today, December 7, 2022, at the Kamukunji grounds in Kibera.
In an effort to send a message to the Kenya Kwanza government, Raila is anticipated to address the throng and urge everyone to pass him for the next 30 days.
Raila's planned demonstrations are an exercise of his constitutional rights, and President Ruto assured Azimio that he would not interfere with them.
In an interview on Wednesday, December 7, 2022 in the morning, Owen Baya, a Kilifi member of parliament and a close ally of the president, explained why the president decided not to put an end to the protests.
Baya claims that if the government tried to put an end to the Azimio protests, chaos would reign in Kenya. For this reason, the president has refrained from ordering the police to stop the demonstrations.
